Gemstone Celebrates Community Unity

Residents and team members at Gemstone Care Centre put their caring hands to work earlier this month to prepare sandwiches – lots of sandwiches – for the Love Hard Society.


Brocklehurst Gemstone Care Centre is a comfortable & secure complex care facility situated on 4 acres of lawns and gardens overlooking the Thompson River and conveniently located at 1955 Tranquille Road in Kamloops. Opened in June 2013, Gemstone is committed to providing exceptional care & service and to supporting the quality of life for each resident in our licensed 130-bed care home.

The residence has been designed to feel very comforting and safe, just like home, through the beautifully appointed common areas to thoughtful details found throughout the neighborhoods'. Our design team draws upon their expertise in both interior design and senior care, fusing form and function to create a senior-friendly environment designed for comfort, convenience and safety. Our unique neighborhoods serve a wide range of needs from minimal assistance to dementia and Alzheimer’s and including those who require around-the-clock medical monitoring and skilled nursing care.

Gemstone is proud to employ 24-hour qualified nurses and care professionals to provide the necessary programs and services to our residents as well as offer leadership and guidance to our Interdisciplinary Care Team (involving Social Work, Therapies and Dietician services). Our people are some of the most experienced, best trained and dedicated individuals in the long-term care field. The people who work at Gemstone love their job! They share the commitment to provide Resident and Family service excellence each and every day …and to make it be just like home.
